Maybe each nation should build a piece and we put it together like a giant lego set? That would reduce the financial burden

Or we start small and just build a Venator, when we're happy build a Star Destroyer etc

Start smaller with YT-1300's. Would make moon / ISS trips a touch easier

Yeah, but you know how that'll work out.

Everyone gets assigned their own bit of the Death Star to make and everyone's like "Yay, humanity is united peacefully at last as we all work together on a ridiculously gigantic weapon of mass destruction" and then when all the bits are done the whole thing gets assembled in Earth orbit and when they're bolting on the very last thermal exhaust port cover we have like Death Star Day and everyone's like "Yay, we actually did it, let's go blow shit up" so they line up on this asteroid or comet or some shit they've got set up as a test target and the leaders of the world's nations are all standing in the control room and like this seven year old girl who won the world lottery to get to push The Button pushes The Button and there's like this pregnant silence sort of thing until someone goes "Er, so who built the superlaser" and Obama goes "No idea bro, we did the elevators and the air con" and like Putin goes "Don't look at me, comrade, we just did the plumbing" and this goes on until the Governor General Of Tuvalu says "Guys, it was us" and everyone's like "Where the hell is Tuvalu" and the world leaders are like all Googling the place while he's going "We don't have like a manufacturing base and stuff so we did the best we could, it's mainly made of fruit" and like the seven year old girl's crying because she didn't get to blow shit up after all.

So yeah, design by committee sucks.

Or the parts would be distributed for assembly, only to arrive covered in flash and with terrible warping. Have to cover up the gaps between armour plating with Green Stuff...

Be no good building from finecast, we'd have to send it back 3 times then eventually just make do with a "not perfect but it will do" death star! That exhaust port was just a casting defect

I thought the only problem would be that everyone would be using metres and then the US turns up after using yards and inches.

Maybe building a death star is a pretty complex process after all!

Nah, everything would fit together perfectly except the parts the US made, with their crappy Imperial measurements.

I would prefer to build a mini Death Star of my own, just so I can blow stuff up for fun. Not with a planet-destroying laser or anything, just a laser that blows a 20mx20mx20m hole. So then I can blow stuff up and laugh at everyone saying "Look at my freaking Death Star, you can't have it! It's mine, suckers!" and then they'll all cry.
